The biggest Buddha in Korea Part 3: Photos from Nammirueksa

I somehow always manage to find a piano! Even in the middle of nowhere inside of a Buddhist prayer hall!

    Nammireuksa is such a memorable place, but good luck finding any photos of the temple online. Most photos online will only have pictures of the giant Buddha statue. But there is much more to this temple than just the big guy. My photography skills are not excellent, but hopefully they will bring you a more diverse and natural view of the temple grounds.

Some Korean puppies that lived at the temple. They had the cutest dog houses!
Rows of Buddhist deities.

The entrance to the temple is surrounded by rice fields.

Thirsty? Grab a drink from the Buddha water fountain!
